To: GUEST,vanessa and all
For the last 3 weeks, I had been going over the tune to this particular song. I have a 2 yr old granddaughter that mimics songs and wanted to share it with her. I didn't remember the whole song but was pretty sure it had, some wood for the fire," and the chorus. After Easter come sunny days that will melt all the snow".
I'm fifty seven now, was thinking back to this playful song I had learned many years ago. Matter of fact it had been when I was about 6 or 7 years old. I now recall that I had learned it when I was attending Vacation bible school.
Doctors have informed me of a few medical issues in my life, but whose report will I believe. But with prayer, faith and others' prayers looking for Gods will to be done.
Thanks for posting this info you've added unto my joy;
Oh I went to Peter's flowing stream
where the water's so good
and I heard there the cuckoo
as she sang from the wood
Ho-li-ah ho-le-rah-hi-hah ho-le-ra-cuckoo etc
After Easter come sunny days
that will melt all the snow
Then I'll marry my maiden fair
we'll be happy I know
When I've married my maiden fair
then what can I desire?
Oh, a home for her tending,
and some wood for the fire.
